We wanted to take a moment to tell you about a nine-year-old inspiration in our community! Ezra Lucien, the mastermind behind the BRAGG Project, took the initiative to work with Deputy Chief Mark Seaver and collect pennies that will be used to help feed families in Renton - one of the core focuses of the BRAGG Project. We are so excited and inspired by Ezra's actions at such a young age. The sky is the limit for Ezra! Read more about Ezra and the BRAGG Project on our website: bit.ly/3edlLX7 ... See MoreSee Less

Are you looking for something new and socially distant to do this beautiful Saturday? Check out the new King County trail through the Black River Riparian Forest, off Monster Road. Parking is limited on Monster Rd., but the trail is a little piece of wilderness right in Renton. This area is the last vestige of the Black River, which disappeared when Lake Washington was lowered by the Montlake Cut in the 1910s. ... See MoreSee Less

Hey friends - River Valley Cheese is one of our favorite Renton new businesses. They relocated here in downtown Renton after their shop burned down in Issaquah. First a fire - now covid.Due to the composition of the class, they are classified as Phase 3. And thanks to the uptick of positive numbers again, instead of a hopeful July 10th opening, Kristi is delayed with her opening once again for at least another 2+ weeks.These delays are devastating to a small business owner.Please, if you are able, consider reaching out and purchasing a gift card. If not to use for yourself later, then to give to a friend or a good cause. (If you need a good cause --- the Chamber is looking for SWAG to give awards to our Top 10 Teachers in August and we are receiving donations! This one would be amazing!!)www.rivervalleycheese.com/ ... See MoreSee Less
